I've spent the past few months perfecting my guacamole recipe and I've done it! Here it all its delicious perfection.

2 ripe avocados
1 large red tomato, diced
2 jalapenos, diced
1/2 red onion, diced
1 8-oz whole kernel corn
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 lime
2 tsp cilantro (I use the kind in the tube)
Tabasco milder jalapeno (green)
Tabasco chipotle smoked

Mush the avocados (I have a mortar and pestle so I use that, but a fork works almost as well). Add diced tomato, diced jalapeno (I remove the seeds, but you can keep them, depending on how hot you like your guacamole), diced onion, corn, and minced garlic. Mix together. Roll the lime on the countertop to loosen the juices. Slice in half and squeeze one half of the lime's juice into your mixture. Squeeze out cilantro and add to mixture. Add seven drops of green Tabasco and 14 drops of smoked Tabasco. Salt and pepper to taste.

We really like the tortilla chips that Whole Foods makes fresh each day, but you can serve with any chip. Let me know what you think!
